Prehistoric ancestor of leukaemia is found in 45-million-year-old bat species

Wired.co.uk - Mar 6, 2017
The retrovirus fossil record contains DNA sequences derived from ancient retroviruses that have been 'preserved' in animal genomes. Over recent years, studies of these sequences have revealed the unexpectedly ancient origins of various retrovirus ...

Curing Cancer with CRISPR

Technology Networks - Mar 22, 2017
Conventional approaches for engineering T cells to express a CAR, such as using a retrovirus to deliver the gene, result in the gene being inserted at random locations in the genome. With these approaches, however, there is a chance that the CAR gene ...

Plague: One Scientist’s Intrepid Search for the Truth about Human Retroviruses and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome , Autism, and Other Diseases

by: Kent Heckenlively, Judy Mikovits
On July 22, 2009, a special meeting was held with twenty-four leading scientists at the National Institutes of Health to discuss early findings that a newly discovered retrovirus was linked to chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), prostate cancer, lymphoma, and eventually neurodevelopmental disorders in children. When Dr. Judy Mikovits finished her presentation the room was silent for a moment, then one of the scientists said, “Oh my God!” The resulting investigation would be like no other in science.

Retroviruses: Molecular Biology, Genomics and Pathogenesis

Retroviruses comprise a diverse family of enveloped RNA viruses, remarkable for their use of reverse transcription of viral RNA into linear double stranded DNA during replication and the subsequent integration of this DNA into the genome of the host cell. Members of this family include important pathogens such as HIV-1, feline leukemia, and several cancer-causing viruses. However, interest in these viruses extends beyond their disease-causing capabilities. For example, research in this area led to the discovery of oncogenes, a major advance in the field of cancer genetics.

Avian Leukosis

The intention of the series Developments in Veterinary Virology is to provide monographs dealing with the major animal viral diseases. Each volume will include the latest achievements in fundamental research and practical applications and should be readable for people from various disciplines and different backgrounds. The multi-author approach provides the best opportunity to keep each chapter at the highest level and makes the composition of the volumes manageable to the editors. This monograph on Avian Leukosis presents comprehensive reviews on the recent history of avian retrovirus research, on epizootiological, virological, pathological aspects, on tumor induction, the immune response to avian retro­ viruses, virus-cell interactions and on techniques for diagnosis.

Cellular Factors Involved in Early Steps of Retroviral Replication. Current Topics in Microbiology and Immunology, No. 281

The articles in this volume provide a comprehensive overview of our current understanding of the roles played by cellular factors in the early steps of retroviral replication. A better understanding of these functions will provide critical new insights into retrovirus-host cell interactions and is likely to prove useful for the future development of effective antiretroviral therapies.
